In response to all of the emails (wow!) I've finally been able to update our Toronto & Buffalo Area OTA HDTV Channel Map
. This includes the latest updates to all GTA channels after the analog cutoff on August 31st, plus updates to Buffalo and Rochester stations, as well as a refreshed reference map.
Almost every entry has been modified in some way, and as there was a huge amount of changes to incorporate please take the time to let me know if you spot an error or omission! Also, I would like to hear about any new digital repeaters in the area that haven't been included.
For more, see our HDTV Forum. Note: list updated again October 3, 2011.
